Default Tivoli - Marking the 10th Anniversary of the Armed Uprising

... As we approach the 10th anniversary of the "Tivoli Incursion" on May 23 the issue of crime and those whom conduct, support and/or give tacit approval by ignoring the people supporting criminals, must be examined and held accountable. That's IF Jamaica wishes to curb the scourge. As the criminal-supporters abound openly in JA (and on this forum) with little accountability, Jamaicans do not appear ready to rid themselves of the problem.

Sparked by the largest armed uprising in Jamaica's history, the military incursion was the single bloodiest event caused by criminals in Jamaica's history since the Eventide Massacre (5m in). Then the criminals were working at the behest of the US Govt against the GOJ of the day. This is as opposed to the US govt's supportve role of GOJ in subduing the Tivoli Terrorists & Co.

Those unfortunates whom have suffered and will continue suffering grevously from the impacts of Jamaica's biggest problem - extreme criminality - cannot be forgotten. We would all know many such people and have been personally impacted. This series is in their recognition.

Les begin with some baseline facts -


The 2010 Kingston unrest, dubbed locally the Tivoli Incursion, was an armed conflict between Jamaica's military and police forces in the country's capital Kingston, and the Shower Posse drug cartel. The conflict began on 23 May 2010 as security forces began searching for Christopher "Dudus" Coke, a major drug lord, after the United States requested his extradition,[1] and the leader of the criminal gang that attacked several police stations.

The violence, which largely took place over 2425 May, killed at least 73 civilians and wounded at least 35 others. Four soldiers and police were also killed and more than 500 arrests were made, as Jamaican police and soldiers fought gunmen in the Tivoli Gardens district of Kingston.

Much of the unrest happened in the constituency of the then Prime Minister of Jamaica, Bruce Golding, who said he was "taken aback" by its scale. He was described by the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) as a "known criminal affiliate" of Coke; Golding retorted that this was "extremely offensive". Although the U.S. government considered Golding one of Coke's associates, it said it supported the Jamaican government's attempt to capture Coke.

When prompted as to his whereabouts three days after the mission was launched, police stated they did not know where Coke was. Coke was eventually captured on 23 June, after initial rumours that he was attempting to surrender to the United States. Kingston police arrested him on the outskirts of the city, apparently while a local reverend, Reverend Al Miller, was helping negotiate Coke's surrender to the United States Embassy.

Recognizing the victims of Jamaica's horrendous criminality and exposing the Dummies supporting criminals by their deeds.. or their silence.
